Description : Pathways to Personal Freedom using the Silva Method is a compilation of fifty ideas to help uncover the ways of inner bliss that lay dormant within each of us. Happiness and Personal Freedom are concepts that most of us have taken for granted. Society teaches us to please others; look for approval and acceptance from others; check in with those who “know better” than we do; allow our negative thoughts to overtake our actions, our way of life and even health. Each Pathway starts with a quote to encourage thinking and inspiration to bring about a spark of insight that is already known but may have been forgotten along the way. What follows are suggestions and examples from the authors’ lives and experiences as to how to achieve bliss and inner harmony. Each will end with an affirmation to be recited in the present time to instill the ideas as if they are already in place and to help enhance this new way of thinking. Some of these ideas may be new and even foreign—but they have stood the test of time and used by many throughout the world. Jose Silva, Sr. was a pioneer in the study and application of mind control. His youngest daughter, Diana Silva-Mendez and coauthor, Robert Deutchman have put together this labor of love for the benefit of Silva Method enthusiasts, trainers, Silva graduates, and to all who seek to tap into their inner wisdom.
Description : There are few questions more central to understanding the prehistory of our species than those regarding the institutionalization of social inequality. Social inequality is manifested in unequal access to goods, information, decision-making, and power. This structure is essential to higher orders of social organization and basic to the operation of more complex societies. An understanding of the transformation from relatively egalitarian societies to a hierarchical organization and socioeconomic stratification is fundamental to our knowledge about the human condition. In a follow-up to their 1995 book Foundations of Social Inequality, the Editors of this volume have compiled a new and comprehensive group of studies concerning these central questions. When and where does hierarchy appear in human society, and how does it operate? With numerous case studies from the Old and New World, spanning foraging societies to agricultural groups, and complex states, Pathways to Power provides key historical insights into current social and cultural questions.

Description : In this exciting addition to the field of leadership development, author Barbara Curry charts a course for women as leaders on their own terms. Curry moves beyond traditional, formulaic conceptions to examine leadership as a fluid, adaptive process closely entwined with adult development. Drawing from philosophical, sociological, and physiological explorations of the leader persona, Curry approaches leadership as an interdisciplinary art. She casts aside mythical characterizations of leadership to illuminate a more holistic conceptual framework that fosters the development of authentic leadership. Using portraits of eight women in high-level leadership roles, Curry probes the kinds of conflict that often accompany womens ascendancy to positions of power. Thoughtfully, Curry examines the constellation of character traits and environmental circumstances that enable individuals to perceive of themselves as leaders and to function productively in such roles. The books dynamic approach provides a bridge between explanation and proactive intervention, offering guidance for organizations and institutions aiming to encourage employees ascendancy to leadership positions. Through incisive analysis of the psychological and sociological evolution of womens emergence in leadership roles, the Developing Leader Persona will enable both women and men to don the mantle of leadership with increased confidence.

Description : This collection of twenty-eight essays by renowned anthropologist Eric R. Wolf is a legacy of some of his most original work, with an insightful foreword by Aram Yengoyan. Of the essays, six have never been published and two have not appeared in English until now. Shortly before his death, Wolf prepared introductions to each section and individual pieces, as well as an intellectual autobiography that introduces the collection as a whole. Sydel Silverman, who completed the editing of the book, says in her preface, "He wanted this selection of his writings over the past half-century to serve as part of the history of how anthropology brought the study of complex societies and world systems into its purview."
